Can you guess? It’s a word so versatile and exploitable in the heat of a discussion yet so meaningless as a result that it embodies and rejects itself at the same time.
I’ve lost track of how many how ways I’ve seen the word trainwreck used. Not many words can boast having upwards of 10 entirely seperate definitions, having both positive and negative connotations at the same time, being usable as a verb, adjective, noun and adverb and still mean absolutely nothing in the long run. The word itself is it’s very essence, it’s own definition, and that’s why I’m nominating for Word of The Year 2008.
